The student-teaching experience is the most noteworthy experience for a teacher candidate (TC) in a teacher preparation program. University supervisors play a crucial role in this experience through feedback, support and maintaining congruency between the student teaching environment and the teacher preparation program. Due to issues related to time, distance and budget, completing on-site observations of the TC can be challenging. This article serves as a practical guide for university supervisors to virtually observe TCs using synchronous video conferencing. Technology and equipment needed, preparation tasks, and factors to consider are explored.
